If you have followed my blog for the past few years, you know how I feel about deodorant with aluminum. I have been on the search for the perfect natural deodorant for a few years now. With all of them that I have tried, you would think something would work, right? A few have come very close to meeting my needs but honestly, by the end of the day, I still had that “funk” smell. Until now…
We have been using Young Living essential oils for over two years and absolutely love them. I have been making my own facial moisturizer, a sleepy concoction, one for tummy issues and headaches. I finally broke down and started making my own deodorant about a year ago and boy, oh boy, I am SO glad I did!
I made another batch yesterday and absolutely love it! I have been using natural deodorants for a few years now and have tried at least a dozen different types. They just work ok for me until now. I am soooo excited! So, here is my recipe (super easy):
I mixed these in a bowl. It was quite dry and crumbly so I heated it in the microwave for about 5 seconds, just to warm the coconut oil and shea butter. Then I added 30 drops of Young Living Purification oil and used a fork to mix it all together, very gently. It mixes and becomes a smooth cream/paste.
I put it in a glass Bell 4 oz jar and a smaller glass jar. Now, when I went to use it, it had solidified quite a bit so I took a little out and let it warm up in the palm of my hand then I rubbed it into my underarms. You only need a little bit.
Honestly, this is the best I have ever used. (FYI, regular deodorants with aluminum have shown to possibly cause breast cancer and are endocrine disruptors along with many other health implications).
It’s all about the journey…
